no i need one motor drive

Then you will get one degree of freedom.
Or, like the old remote control cars, you could set it up so when it drives forward it goes straight, but when it goes in reverse it goes left.
Or, you could use pneumatics to turn and have it drive like a standard car.

I hope this is a troll post. If you are genuinely considering a 1 motor drive for VRC, stop right now. You say you need it, but you need to be able to drive. With a 1 motor drive, you will struggle to line up with game objects, be slow, and have almost no pushing power.

It’s vexforum not vrcforum, probably just for a school project or something.

you could make a ratcheting gear to make right side move forward when the motor moves forward and left move forward when the motor moves backwards and watch chaos unfold as someone tries to drive it

You’re wrong. We NEED a champion for one motor drive. We in 7121B have been considering this for ages, but we can’t because we have to actually do well in the competitions. However, if someone could set a NEW standard…

Imagine just having a robot that has one motor drive and seven hooks, and it can literally just hold onto every goal

You wont even be able to drive with one motor and 7 goals
Get pneumatics? That will be way better than a one motor drive. Anything is better than a one motor drive. Anything. Don’t skip the priorities

No, but you COULD just be sitting duck. You can camp with all the goals. Rules don’t matter, WE NEED 1 MOTOR DRIVE REPRESENTATION

I think we need no motor representation. Pneumatic drive and manipulators.

Yep! The opposing team will just make sure that you camp on their side of the field.

Now try to mount the battery and brain using standoffs to keep the weight low.
I’d suggest using smaller wheels to reduce weight, even if you have to gear up more to make up for lost circumference.
